    Default Stirrup leathers recommendations for monoflap jump saddle

    I have two sets of Gary Mundy leathers. The normal pair reside on my other saddle, and I found them to be a bit bulky under my thigh. The other set I have are ones that fasten from the bottom. The first time I put them on my jump saddle for a hack I loved them. But after raising them a couple holes for a short jump school there is no way I can use them. The buckle guard hurt my legs through my boots and after just twenty minutes I have bruises.

    So, monoflap owners...which leathers did you choose and why? I want something without a lot of bulk, won't scratch my saddle, but will hold up. The saddle is a Stubben Excalibur. Not the most comfortable saddle in general, but it fits me and my horse pretty well.

    I like the Ovation Web-As. The leather is decent quality (with a nylon core) and they have the t-bars rather than the buckle.

    I just have the 3/4" Stubben leathers that match the Excalibur and they seem fine to me!

    Which GMs do you have? I use my stitched edged GMs on my monoflap. But the plain (no frills) leathers are a smidgen less bulky.
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    jen-s I honestly can't remember. I love them on my other saddle, but not on my monoflap for some reason!

    I just have plain Stubben leathers. I found lined leathers to be too bulky.

    I use lined leathers on my Excalibur. I didn't want the calfskin ones because they wear out so quickly, but I wanted something soft. I found these:

    I really like them--especially for the price.
